Soundcastle have recently been working in partnership with Simon Magnus of Root Experience, combining our respective music and movement artforms and enhancing and developing our facilitation practice. This exploration of cross-arts facilitation in a mental health setting which was hosted by Worthing Musem, supported by Arts Council England, Awards for All and Worthing Community Chest and ran in partnership with Sussex Recovery College and Brighton University. We worked with adults in recovery from mental health challenges, researching how music and movement can be combined to promote wellbeing, resilience and confidence building in mental health settings.
We are also delighted to offer CPD sessions in how cross-arts work can be utilised in mental health contexts and we hope to offer more in the future so follow us on Twitter (@TeamSoundcastle) or sign up to our mailing list for announcements!
If you would like to discuss bespoke training for your organisation, school or charity then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will happily explore what we can offer you.
‘Just wanted to say that the Soundcastle training has transformed my teaching this week. My sessions had a more natural flow, my students had more agency and we achieved a musicality that we hadn’t before. Brilliant. Thank you!’
We are currently applying for further funding to bring this project back to Worthing and expand the reach so keep an ear out for our next adventures!
